Choosing gifts for your bridal attendants is probably one item on a long wedding to do list. If you are stumped when it comes to what to get your bridesmaids, consider some of these great bridesmaid gift ideas:
  • Get them a gift certificate to a spa. They can use it to go get a facial or massage or to get their hair and nails done for the big day!
  • Take them out to lunch. Round up all your girls and take them out for a luncheon or an afternoon tea. It's a fun and personal way to say thanks.
  • Jewelry is always a popular option for bridesmaid gifts. Get them jewelry items they can wear for the wedding or an engraved piece of jewelry such as a locket that tells them how thankful you are to have them in your life.
  • Gift Baskets are a great bridesmaid gift idea. Get them all the same type or create gift baskets geared towards each bridesmaid's individual likes and interests. A bedtime themed gift basket would be a great idea that works well for everyone. Include a nice set of pajamas, a pair of slippers, sleep eye mask, candles, scented body lotions, and relaxing facial mud masks.
  • An elegant tea set including a teapot, tea cups, and various gourmet teas are a great gift idea for a bridesmaid that loves tea.
  • Fill a fancy handbag with essentials that might come in handy for the wedding day. You could include makeup, little bottles of lotion, a fancy pair of pantyhose, safety pins, aspirin, snacks, a manicure set, etc.

Remember, you don't have to get each bridesmaid exactly the same gift but you should spend approximately the same amount on each girl, with a little more being spent on the maid or matron of honor due to the extra responsibilities she has. By taking your bridesmaids' interests and personalities into account, you should be able to come up with great gift ideas they will love.
